    I cry rivers of tears

    So caught up in the fear that
    You
    may
    never
    know
    me

    THE REAL ME.

    I’m lost to a society
    That tried to teach me
    The error of my ways

    But…

    Do
    .....you
    ..........see
    ...............me?

    Do you?

    Adorned in green and white stripes
    As I stand before you

    You ask me if this is real
    …my river of tears

    What do you expect me to say?

    I saw fear in the eyes of a child
    And when I told someone
    They asked,
    “Why do you care?”

    But I do care.

    My river overflows
    With the depths of my caring
    So, I stand here…Sharing
    The deepest parts of me

    I cry rivers of tears
    That flow up hill
    For fear…of the pain I feel

    YES…This is real

    I’m drowning in a river of
    Unsolicited teardrops
    I can’t get my mind to stop thinking that
    I have failed…ME.

    Hear my teardrops.

    we acknowledge that the homeless are invisible to us...unfortunately. we should also acknowledge that we try hard to over look...or, look over the addicts of the world. not all of them are happy with their status. (((even if they have succumbed to the pull of their choice of addiction)))

    j'hiah/$$RICH$$...THANKS for reading.

    tear drops falling down some are about to hit the ground
    some are about to be catched and to be found

    when somebody cries the heart condition is treu at that moment

    you have not failed...
